This wonderful BAYFRONT retreat is the perfect getaway for a romantic vacation by the beach in sunny San Diego. Not only couples but also small families would enjoy this beautifully decorated stylish cottage with its modern design and unobstructed views and exceptional location. Walk out the front door and your feet are in the sands of Mission bay; walk across the street and you are surfing the blue Pacific.

Located at 3678 Bayside Walk, this newly remodeled home with its private furnished patio overlooking the bay offers everything you can imagine for a wonderful vacation. It features hardwood floors throughout, a new fully equipped kitchen with all new appliances, brand new chic furniture including a comfortable queen bed with brand new mattress (Oct. 2013), a couch that sleeps one adult, a large flat screen TV in the living room as well as in the bedroom, DVD player, I-pod dock station, lots of kids equipment, private furnished patio with gas BBQ and much more. Additional sleeping option available.

Linens, towels, beach chairs, beach towels, kids gate, baby tub, high chair and pack n play are offered for your convenience. There is one parking spot in a 2 car garage available (fits economy/compact car).

In addition we provide various supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, hand soap, sponge and trash bags).

There is no washer and dryer in the unit but a great laundromat very close by (3 minute walk).

The unit can comfortably sleep 2 adults and a third person on the couch in the living room. Due to the cozy size of the cottage we limit the amount of people to 3 adults max. We would only agree to a 4th person if it's a small child. Please know that for a family of 4 it will feel very small.

The home is conveniently located in the heart of Mission Beach. It’s in walking distance to many convenience stores, bars and restaurants in Mission Beach and Pacific Beach.The Santa Clara and Aquatic Recreation Center is only a short walk away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Email from renter: We have enjoyed our time in your "bike friendly" city! We had a great time!! We were able to cycle to all attractions we wanted to see- even "UP" the hill to Balboa Park! Our condo was a great location- we didn't use our car once...were able to manage fine walking and cycling!

Everything was fine with our accommodations . Thank you. We really appreciate your promptness in fixing the blinds so we had ensured privacy, too.

Cute little house on the bay

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house to treat my BFF to a girls weekend at the beach. This house was great as it was larger than a hotel room and had a kitchen, in case we decided to cook. Perfect location! We could walk along the bay, to the beach, to the pier and to the area where the roller coaster was.

My car didn't fit in the garage (Audi A7, so it is NOT a compact car). Not too big a deal, we parked overnight in the parking lot down the road. Although it did make us think twice before driving anywhere! We went to dinner one night in town and took Uber so we didn't have to worry about parking when we got back.

Try the Grilled Cheese shop, "Cheesy Express" in town on Mission Blvd near Mission Bay Drive. We wanted to go back for dessert but didn't make it, so we will have to come back!

fall vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here and it was fabulous space for 2 people. The location was super. Beach was a 4 minute walk. We opted out of renting a car and biked EVERYWHERE. Ralphs supermarket, La Jolla, Sunset Beach, etc. It was a prefect way to get around. Never any traffic or parking issues. We will be back!

Had a Great Time

  • 4 of 5

We mostly echo the review of "Mathew B" below. The official description is accurate and honest but I would add these observations: () The patio is "private" in the sense that it is not shared but it is right next to Bayside Walk and the steady stream of passers-by are a mere few feet away. We liked this, but some might not. () The bedroom and bathroom are tight for big people. I had to shuffle sideways to get to the bathroom, and the bathroom is tight too. Completely usable but very small. () As mentioned elsewhere, the garage space will only accommodate a small vehicle. The 2nd space in the garage is available to some stranger so you are dependent on them parking responsibly, closing the big door, being honest, etc. () I don't believe there is room for both a vehicle AND bicycles in the garage, nor is there really a good place on the patio to put or lock bikes. () There were few minor issues with the unit which we passed on to Pacific Sands and I am confident they will address them soon. These issues did not affect the enjoyment of our week. () The unit does not come with full size beach chairs, which I prefer, but it does have the low, almost-on-the-sand chairs. () The company "Cheap Rentals" is very close and we rented bikes, beach umbrella, and a paddle board from them. Recommend. () External parking: beware - if you show up on mid-day on a Saturday in August as we did there will be no spaces available anywhere nearby. If you bring a vehicle too big for the garage you will have a major challenge finding parking nearby. () The unit does indeed have WiFi even though the description does not mention it. () Pacific Sands has been honest and accommodating. () I almost never give out a 5 star rating so a 4 star from me is very good.

Best Honeymoon Ever

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage for our honeymoon, down from BC, Canada. We stayed for one week and had the greatest time. The bed was extremely comfortable, it had everything that we needed by way of dishes, it was clean, fresh, and romantic.

We especially loved breakfasts on the patio, and the walk outside our house was perfect for people watching. It was so nice and quiet (a bit louder on the weekends, of course), and yet only a minute or two meander up the street to Mission Beach, with restaurants and stores and beautiful sunsets. There is even a nice grocery store a quick bike ride away, and the WiFi was extremely helpful so we could find everything - as was the personalized guide book placed by the owners.

We rented bikes, and it was lovely to have a garage to put them in to keep them safe overnight. We rode everywhere, only taking a taxi a few times to Old Town, and to the Zoo - we even rode to Sea World and it didn't take long, maybe 15 minutes!

Our one issue, that wasn't even a big one, was that the showerhead was a little low - we are tall so it was a bit hard to scrub in there. :) Also the cottage does warm up during the day because of the stove, but when we came back in the afternoons and opened the windows it cooled down quite nicely - also there were a ton of fans, which we really appreciated!!

We can't wait for our next trip back to San Diego and we would for sure consider this rental again - it is in the perfect location!

Needed more space

  • 5 of 5

Had the best time!!! Only complaint was the pics didn't show just how small the house was. We will be going back for sure, just in a bigger house.

Owner's Response: Ryan, Nice to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. As I always tell people, this wonderful Bayfront cottage is perfect for a couple (very romantic with private patio) but it might feel a bit small when bringing kids. For families, I usually offer one of our more spacious units next door - either our 1BR with comfortable queen sleeping sofa (#423120) or our 2BR with King and Queen bed (#362573). Both comfortably sleep 4 people and offer more living space.

Lovely Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This Beach Cottage was right on the bay and one and a half blocks behind is Mission Beach so it was great for our family of four (our kids are 7 and 4 years). Great location and very clean!! We parked and didn't have to drive anywhere for an entire week! Everything was so close and if we wanted to be down by the Pier we rode our bikes. I would highly recommend and have already told friends about this Unit!! If your kids are bigger you might consider an air bed but our kids fit just fine on the front couch/futon. The owners/property manager were very accommodating as well! We asked at the last minute if we could come one day earlier and they got back to us right away and made it all happen for us to spend an extra day there!!

Thank you so much!
